Armstrong Fluid Technology launches single phase pumps for light-duty installations

Armstrong single phase pump.

Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced a new version of its Design Envelop pump to service light duty installations where the available power is single phase.

David Lee, programme manager, product development, Armstrong Fluid Technology, said: “Many light-commercial and residential buildings use single phase power and some mechanical rooms ‘step down’ three phase power to make single phase power available. These new pumps provide a practical and economical solutions for those installations.”

The new Design Envelope pumps are now available for use with single phase power from 1/3 to 2hp and, for increased reliability, are built to a design standard carried over from commercial pumps. In addition, because the mechanical room piping for light-duty fluid-flow applications is often installed vertically, these new single-phase pumps can be installed and operated in vertical piping.

As with all Design Envelope pumps, the technology is built around a demand-based intelligent control solution that models equipment and system behaviour, monitors actual system conditions, and dynamically adjusts equipment operation to match system demand.
